Sicko recorded women as they tried on bikinis
A PEEPING Tom who secretly filmed sisters trying on bikinis in changing rooms at Asda used his iPad to record the video.
Benjamin Meyer is one of the first people to be convicted of using the hi-tech tablet device to spy on his victims.
Married Meyer was placed on the Sex Offenders Register after he admitted filming women in the supermarket on at least nine occasions.
The 30-year-old held his iPad over the top of the cubicle as the sisters, aged 18 and 22, stripped off to try on a number of skimpy swimsuits.
Prosecutor Robbie Brown told Perth Sheriff Court: “What the accused has been doing is attending the changing area at the premises and using his iPad. He has placed it over the cubicle to watch the two ladies.
“The two ladies are sisters aged 18 and 22. They had gone in to try on bikinis and swimsuits. That was ongoing when one of them noticed something untoward.”
Mr Brown added: “Security staff were informed and analysis of the CCTV footage led to the accused. He was traced because he’d used a card showing his identity when he bought goods from the store.
“The police became involved and the accused subsequently admitted it to the police. What the CCTV shows is a number of instances where the device is placed over the changing room and then is lowered and that occurs on nine occasions over a period of 20 minutes.”
The court heard Meyer was seen leaving the changing area for a brief period before returning to carry out the same act. By the time police arrested him he had deleted the files.
Meyer, of Crieff, Perthshire, admitted using the tablet computer to secretly record pics of the two women at Asda in Perth on Aug 13.
Sentence was deferred until next month for the preparation of social work reports and he was placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register.
